On 21 November 2011 Justice Gummow of the High Court granted the Commissioner’s application for an expedited timetable for the hearing of the Application for Special Leave to appeal from the decision of the Full Court in Commissioner of Taxation v Multiflex Pty Ltd  FCAFC 142. The transcript from the application can be accessed here and my analysis of the decision of the Full Federal Court can be accessed here.
The application for special leave will be heard in Sydney on Friday 9 December 2011.
On 19 November 2011 Justice Edmonds of the Federal Court granted a stay of the judgment of the Full Federal Court until 13 December 2011. If the Commissioner is successful in the application for special leave, he will no doubt ask the High Court to extend the stay. My post on the decision to grant the stay can be accessed here.
